David Bailey and Thomas Wiehe Transcript Of Phone Link: Sathya Sai Abuses

Posted by Barry Pittard on October 25, 2009

Hear David Bailey Speak Of The Abuses

NOTE:  In this article, in addition to the verbatim transcript, links are given to a recording of this important phone conversation. Those in quest of the facts are invited to listen carefully, and form their own sense of David Bailey. For several years, devotees from many parts of the world thought enough of David and his wife Faye (the latter having been a respected leader in the Australian Sathya Sai Organization) to give them great credence. One may conclude that they did not switch - as the Sathya Sai forces would have their members believe - hey presto! to being demons. Nor did any of the many who, after strenuous and painful close enquiry, left the Sai Baba and his sect. 

David Bailey, who with his wife, Faye, spoke out courageously, in exposing Sathya Sai Baba. Their principled stance caused much sacrifice to themselves.

QUOTES

"In 2000, after we had communicated via email, David phoned me and we spoke for about an hour. Both of us had taught within Sathya Sai Baba’s education establishment, he in Music and I in English, although at different periods.

Like Thomas Wiehe (see below), I preferred to allow David to do most of the talking. As I was to find repeatedly in my contacts with former leading and rank-and-file members of the Sathya Sai Organization, there was a palpable sense – especially in the phone contacts – of an urgency somehow, against formidable odds, to put matters as right as they might ever be put".
 
 "Apart from David, I spoke, face-to-face and at some length, with one who has for many years been exceptionally close to Faye Bailey's son, who compellingly shared saddening disclosures with me. Hearing such deeply disturbing accounts has been the lot of many former devotees around the world, who have made their own investigations, particularly in their own localities where individuals, a great many of whom have never met each other, report in contexts bearing striking resemblances.

Worldwide, former devotees are ready to testify to reputed media, law courts, police and other bona fide investigators. This readiness to be accountable is precisely what the Sathya Sai Organization has so singularly failed to be".
